In class this week:
We completed the STAAR Reading Benchmark yesterday in class. This was a great way for students to see what the STAAR test looks like and become more comfortable with the format for the real deal.
We are continuing our work with fractions in math, relating them to division and then comparing two fractions.
We have a new spelling list this week with the prefixes re- and pre-. Don't forget to practice for 5 minutes each night.
We are also working on inferencing in language arts, but this time our focus is on how to infer in a nonfiction text.
Social studies is focused on the three branches of government. It has brought about a lot of opinions and conversations in class so far, so I am sure they would love to talk about it at home too!
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
